Jersey Numbers is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

## Puzzle

You are tasked with spray-painting player numbers onto your team's baseball uniforms. You've prepared 10 paper stencils, each with a number from zero to nine. With the stencils cup out, you are now ready to paint player numbers on all six jerseys.

If each jersey has room for two horizontal oriented numbers, what's the fewest number of stencils you need to number the six jerseys?

## Hints

Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

In order to number six different jerseys, you will need to select six numbers from 0 through 99.

Maybe the numbers you're looking for are staring you in the face right now.

## Solution

### Incorrect

Give it another shot.

You need to use as few stencils as possible to come up with six unique numbers to paint on the jerseys.

You may need to turn everything you know about numbers upside down to find the answer.

### Correct

Sharp thinking!

As illustrated above, either the 6 or 9 stencil can be flipped to produce another number. This means you get the whole job done with just one stencil.
